Speaker: Sharon Rose
Marking International Women’s Day, we honour women’s political and social advancement across the world, and we re-commit to principles of social justice and equality. Inspired by the remarkable UU education program, Cakes for the Queen of Heaven, we will explore the divine feminine in a pre-biblical world, and seek insights to guide our contemporary search for social justice and equality.
On March 16 there will be NO Service at 18 Wynford Drive.
Instead, we will be joining Neighbourhood Unitarian Universalist Congregation

From Turtle Island to Palestine: Drawing a Parallel Using Water as a Bridge
Speaker: Naomi Binder-Wall
Water is life, or so goes the rhetoric. Declarations of our universal right to water abound, but while human rights organizations, the United Nations, International NGOs, and even governments declaim our universal right to clean water and sanitation, the reality, on the ground, tells a different, more brutal story.

Learning with Girls as Women: USC Yesterday and Today in Bangladesh
Speaker: Kate Green
Kate Green will speak about USC’s work in Bangladesh. Currently, Kate is the Program Manager for the whole of the Asian Programs of USC – Bangladesh, Nepal and Timor Leste.
Since we started working in Bangladesh in 1972, it has been one of the most rewarding and innovative programs of USC Canada. In Dr. Lotta’s diary from that year, she wrote about the women there – and that theme has woven its way through our 40 years of partnership in this beautiful and challenging country. The last 15 years in particular have focused on the work of young women. Kate shares a deep connection with them and is eager to share their stories about economic empowerment, organic agriculture, marriage rights, and seed saving.
